  Orthodontic Dentistry

Orthodontics are an excellent means of correcting malpositioned teeth. They can dramatically affect your appearance, but importantly, orthodontics can correct TMJ disorder as well as reduce your susceptibility to dental decay and periodontal disease.
Typically, orthodontic treatment consists of the application of small ceramic, or metal brackets to the teeth. These brackets are attached to an arch wire which helps shape the teeth. Often springs and rubber bands are also used to help move the teeth.

Treatment usually takes from one to three years to complete. The amount of time depends on the cooperation of the patient and the difficulty of the case. Once treatment is over, it may be necessary to use a retainer for several years; however, in some cases, a small permanent retainer can be bonded to the teeth.


Q When is the ideal time to seek treatment?
A The best age to do the orthodontic treatment is when you are twelve to thirteen years of age as all the permanent teeth have usually erupted by this stage. The jaws are growing at this age and so it is easier to expand your jaws and reshape your mouth. However, it may be worth seeking advice even earlier. By the age of seven, enough permanent teeth have come in and enough jaw growth has occurred that the dentist or orthodontist can identify current problems, anticipate future problems or alleviate parents' concerns if all seems normal.
Q Am I too OLD for orthodontic treatment?
A There are no age limits! Orthodontic treatment can easily be done at an older age, if the dental and gingival condition is good. Most adults get orthodontic treatment because they realize that taking care of your smile is part of taking care of yourself.

Metal Braces

Metal braces (stainless steel) are the most popular type of braces used. Many patients enjoy having different colors placed on their braces as a means of personal expression and fun. Because it's so simple to change the colors, feel free to swap them at every visit.

Clear Braces

Clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative for those who don't want their braces to show as much. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do. Like metal braces, they are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient at moving teeth

Lingual Braces

 The difference is invisible - Invisible Braces, the state-of-the-art design that offers an amazing technological advancement in orthodontic treatment. These braces are behind some of the most dazzling smiles that you see everyday, and yet you probably never noticed them. Lingual or Invisible Braces are applied behind the teeth

Q Are Lingual Braces more uncomfortable than conventional braces?
A Initial discomfort is similar to that of traditional braces. The difference is that the Lingual Braces will affect the tongue and traditional braces will affect the cheeks and lips. Patients tend to take approximately 1-4 weeks before they achieve a reasonable comfort level.
Q Are Lingual Braces expensive?
A Although treatment time is similar, lingual braces are more expensive than traditional braces. Special instrumentation, equipment, doctor and staff training are required for this technique. The treatment is more sophisticated and the personal time and training required by the orthodontist and his staff is considerably greater.
